School is back in session and that means it's time to rack up a big textbook bill or maybe cut that bill in half and go digital.
"First days they tell you what textbook you need and they tell you different options like you can get the e-book online," said Kelsey Nilles, a sophomore at UNL.
You can still highlight, bookmark and take notes, it's just all done on a tablet like a Kindle or an iPad. It's a popular option at other colleges, but some UNL student's aren't buying into it.
"I often share my books with my friends in the class. I we have the same class, we'll share it so it's easier if one of us has to take it. More convenient that way for us," said UNL sophomore, Kevin Thor.
Thor says there's still one thing missing from the digital textbook, a good sale. "I only spent $180 so it wasn't bad at all. I got them pretty cheap and I can return them for a little over $100," he said.
He's not alone. Others say trying to read a book on the computer is just not the same. "I like having the hard copy in front of me to be able to flip back and forth through the pages," said Nilles.
So when it comes to the big question of buying physical versus digital, these students say it all depends on your learning style.
If you do buy textbooks, they're available 24-7 on your tablet, you don't have to be connected to the Internet.
